BARCELONA: Barcelona have signed Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid for 120 million euros (£107 million) after paying his release clause, the La Liga champions said in a statement on Friday.

France forward Griezmann, 28, rejected a move to Barcelona last year to sign a new contract with Atletico but announced in May he was leaving the Madrid side, where he has spent the last five seasons since signing from Real Sociedad in 2014.
